      6. Manuscript Review
        Manuscripts are evaluated by two or more expert reviewers. Authors are encouraged to suggest the names and contacts (including e-mail address) of prospective reviewers.

      7. Preparation of manuscript
        • All manuscripts must be accompanied by a cover letter from the corresponding author stating that the manuscript represents original, unpublished material not under editorial consideration elsewhere, and that ethical guidelines were followed in the conduct of the research.
        • All manuscripts must be written in English (the Vancouver style) and the text typed double spaced with wide margins of at least 2.0 cm on all four sides. (Dijana: as all manuscripts are now e-mailed, this is not really relevant). Uniform requirements for manuscripts may be found in the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) Recommendations (http://www. icmje.org/about-icmcje/faqs/icmje-recommenda tions).
        • The title page should contain: title of article, abbreviated running title of no more than 30 characters including spaces, author(s) name(s), initial(s), department, institution, city and country; name and full postal address, telephone, fax and e-mail of the corresponding author.
        • An Abstract of no more than 250 words should start on page 2. A list of 3-6 key words or short phrases (in alphabetical order) should be pro-vided below the abstract.
        • The main text should be arranged in the following components: Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results, Discussion, Acknowledgments, References, Figure legends and Tables; Figures should be presented in a separate file.
        • Declaration of Interest. The authors report no conflicts of interest. The authors alone are responsible for the content and writing of this article. (This statement should follow Acknowledgments.)
        • Cite each reference, figure and table in strict numerical order, e.g., [1-5]; (Table 1); (Figure 1).
        • References (not exceed 30-40 in number) should be numbered in the order in which they are first mentioned in the text. Please cite all authors if there are only six; cite the first six authors followed by et al. if there are more than six authors listed. Prepare the reference list in accordance with the American Medical Association (AMA) Manual of Style, 9th ed. Examples: The surnames of all authors followed by their initials should be given. Abbreviate journal names in accordance with the Index Medicus system (http://www.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/factsheets/constructitle.html). (See examples below.) Journal:

        • Figure legends should be cited at the end of the References. Figures should be prepared on separate pages and sent as a separate file. Number the figures in Arabic numerals in the order in which they are cited in the text.
        • Place all the tables at the end of your file. Start each table on new page, complete with title and footnotes (if any). Number the tables (Arabic numerals) in the order in which they are cited in the text. Always separate the individual columns using tabulators, not using the space bar.
      8. Plagiarism detection.
        The BJMG uses CrossCheck plagiarism software as part of the editorial process in order to ensure that the content published is original and trustworthy. CrossCheck is a medium that allows for comprehensive manuscript screening, aimed at eliminating plagiarism and provide a high standard and quality peer-review process. By submitting your manuscript to this Journal you accept that your manuscript may be screened for plagiarism against previously published articles.
